This game is a diamond hidden under unappealing skin. Once you peel it off, you’ll find literally dozens of overlapping, complex RPG systems, unbelievable freedom in what to do and, well, enough fun for days and weeks.
Amazing Cultivation Simulator brings a massive learning curve, but that curve creates an amazing amount of opportunity and re-playability that will have you discovering new strategies and methods for elevating your cult for a long time over.
- More of an objective based game than Rimworld. Progression feels better.
- Great replay value
- Very thematic. Art is colourful
- Very overwhelming to begin with, dozens of tutorials and the interface is not welcoming.
- Some complicated mechanics can cause deaths far too quickly in a new game.

It's nice how this is clearly very Asian in theme, but the game is just so strange it is hard to recommend.
